    Hi everyone, I finally feel like spring is coming. The sun is shining and almost all of the snow is gone. yah!! So I have started my spring cleaning. Today is top to bottom of the bedding for all 3 beds. And.... gave the dog a shave today from noise to tail and everything in between. Man, I love spring :)
    Does anyone else have the spring bug????

    I've got the spring bug but not that one! Horrible cold just came upon me yesterday at work. Thought allergies but it's not. Hopefully will be gone tomorrow so I can get your spring bug!

    I started last week. Had no choice as we had some renovation done in the basement and everything is full of dust now, from ceiling, walls and curtains.
    We are finishing the main floor today and then, we're off for the summer youppi!

    Well, from previous posts, I have started my cleaning - in the basement because of all the water. I am glad to say that I am in a much better frame of mind THIS Saturday as opposed to LAST Saturday. All of the rugs are dry, furniture has been moved back, the design wall is back up and truly, I only have about 1/8 of the room to finish cleaning up. My daffodils are 7-8 inches tall, the black birds are chasing away my other birds from the feeder (sure sign of spring here) and I am longingly looking at the gazebo! Yeah, I feel like cleaning....wait, must have that other bug....(who feels like cleaning when there is quilting to be done?)

    what spring? we stiull have 3 feet of snow. Lots of ice so have to be careful going out to the car. In the towns snow is melting lots faster than out here in the country. I have some pressing to do on my arrowhead blocks for the swap and then into the bag they go to be mailed to bookworm. also a pkg to get off for a lady making quilts for soldiers. Anyone else want to help her out she "opened her big mouth" is the topic. missgigglewings.

    Amyjo, Sorry you all still have snow, it was 80 yesterday here in Quitman. The flowers are blooming all over the place and the tulip trees are beautiful too. I just finished a quilt top to send to Donna ( miss gigglewings) have to get it in the mail soon, along with my celestial swap blocks.As for the cleaning I try to keep up as best I can so I have more time to play in the garden .

    My big goal is to collect a car full of "stuff" to take up to church for the young women's garage sale next weekend. They are raising money for camp, and it's a great way for me to get rid of more of the stuff I really don't want so that I have more room for - hold your breath - here it comes- FABRIC, of course :lol:

    I cleaned my front yard up yesterday.
    I worked in my basement last week cleaning and getting rid of stuff which I don't know why we saved it anyways.

    I'm up to spring cleaning also and the stuff I don't want is going. I'm sewing spring tops also. Need to make a tablecloth for picnic table. Spring purses are getting made. Hello spring. It's been a long winter.

    Just cleaned and reorganized the pantry. Cleaned up the sewing room. Worked on the office. Garage needs a thorough cleaning and the Jeep needs a scrubbing. Nothing like having a party to get jobs done one has been putting off!

    Well, I started yesterday.LOL Did windows , blinds and curtains. Today is basketball game( Yea Wildcats!!), and doiing some reading. Joints are sore from yesterday. I think I will have to admit that I'm just not able to do it all anymore and hire someone for the really hard stuff. I have never had someone else do cleaning for me, I don't even know all that they do. Right now, I'd like to toss everything out, and re-do from top to bottom, but it isnt going to happen.

    I finished my spring cleaning this past week. The weather was so nice and I had time off work so it was now or never. I'm glad it's done. Now all I have left to do are my taxes. Then it's all behind me for another year!

    Still snow on ground here. Fighting with the skunks this year, each night we place amonia soaked rags around porch so the devils don't make their babies near house. ugh
